Bob Zadek
Bob talks about the issues that affect our lives on a daily basis from a purely libertarian standpoint. He believes in small government, fewer taxes, and greater personal freedom.<br /><br />America has lost its way, but it cannot and does not need to be reinvented. Our founders were correct about their approach to government, as were John Locke, Adam Smith and the other great political philosophers who influenced them. The country’s first principles are economic and social freedom, republicanism, the rule of law, and liberty. Bob believes we must take the best of our founding principles and work from them because a country without principles is just a landmass.
Episode details

2020 was a bad year for small business. Government waged war on the entrepreneur in the name of public safety – imposing harsh lockdowns on those deemed "unessential." Carol Roth, author of a new book "The War on Small Business: How the Government Used the Pandemic to Crush Small Business," makes an important observation that large corporations tended to be exempt from the lockdowns. Isn't that funny!

Roth is a content creator, “recovering” investment banker, entrepreneur, TV pundit and host, and New York Times bestselling author. With 300+ pages of evidence, her new books makes the case that the government has been treating the little guy unfairly since long before COVID. However, the pandemic provided a perfect excuse to ramp up its preferential treatment of privileged cronies at corporations.

Can we even call this capitalism anymore?
